Standalone tickets for the first-ever Formula 1 Heineken Silver Las Vegas Grand Prix sold out quickly and well in advance of the event. The Las Vegas F1 race is set to take place from Nov. 16-18, 2023.

For all three days of F1 in Las Vegas, ticket prices started at $500 for Standing Room — only for passes near The Venetian MSG Sphere. The ticket prices for the weekend elsewhere on the circuit began at $2,000. The most expensive tickets for the weekend of F1 in Las Vegas were more than $10,000.

There are only two ways to get Vegas F1 tickets today.

Numerous F1 Vegas weekend passes are available on secondary ticketing sites for more than double face value. Additionally, most Nevada casinos on the Strip purchased tickets to sell as package deals.

The hotel and Grand Prix ticket deal require guests to stay at the property for three nights to procure a weekend ticket. Most properties are just including tickets that anyone can buy. However, one Vegas Strip casino operator is offering a viewing location exclusive to guests at its properties.

MGM Resorts Las Vegas F1 ticket packages

MGM Resorts will build grandstands to watch the Las Vegas Grand Prix in front of its most iconic property. The only way to sit in the Bellagio Grandstands in front of the fountains and iconic casino is to stay at a participating MGM Resorts property for three nights.

Steve Zanella, MGM Resorts’ chief commercial officer, said:

“In just over a year, F1 fans from around the globe will see how Las Vegas throws a party. In addition to the Bellagio Grandstands, which will set new standards for event viewing, we will create a round-the-clock celebration worthy of this international spectacular.”

Guests can stay at one of the following MGM Resorts properties to get a seat right in the middle of the Vegas Strip on the F1 circuit:

  • Aria (and Vdara)
  • Bellagio
  • Mandalay Bay (and Delano)
  • MGM Grand
  • Park MGM
  • New York-New York
  • Luxor
  • Excalibur

MGM Resorts guests can also choose seats in the ​​Paddock Grandstands if they prefer to be elsewhere on the circuit. The package prices are the same for either location.

Las Vegas F1 prices at MGM start at $2,827 per night for a hotel room with a single seat for the race. Adding another ticket to the package will make the starting price $5,655 per night for two seats in either location.

Each property charges a resort fee for the hotel rooms. There was an hour-long wait to purchase the packages shortly after launching due to overwhelming demand. That wait cleared up quickly and making reservations was back to normal before the afternoon.

Caesars F1 Vegas packages

Caesars released its F1 hotel and ticket packages during the Formula One launch party for the race at Caesars Palace. Unlike the MGM Resorts packages, Caesars’ guests can choose a hotel and casino off the Vegas Strip.

Sean McBurney, regional president of Caesars Entertainment, said:

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to be right in the center of what’s sure to be one of the most exciting nights Las Vegas has ever seen. Our properties are terrifically positioned to make accessing the race, grandstands and paddocks as easy as possible. If you’re looking to experience a night of adrenaline and competition in Las Vegas, we hope to see you at one of our properties next November.”

Caesars has hotel- and Formula 1-ticket packages available at the following properties:

  • Bally’s (Horseshoe)
  • Caesars Palace
  • The Cromwell
  • Flamingo
  • Harrah’s
  • The Linq
  • Paris
  • Planet Hollywood
  • Rio

Caesars ticket and hotel package prices start at $2,600 per night at Rio with seats in the East Harmon Zone of the circuit. For comparison, prices for the same ticket and a room at Caesars Palace start at $3,151 per night.

Prices increase with better rooms inside each property and seat location at the Las Vegas Grand Prix. The Caesars Palace packages for rooms with Paddock Club tickets start at $8,502 per night. The same race ticket and a suite in the Augustus Tower are $25,459 per night.

In addition to the room and ticket prices, there are resort fees for the hotel room and a service fee for the LV F1 passes.

More Vegas Strip Grand Prix visitors’ packages

MGM Resorts and Caesars operate most of the hotels on the Vegas Strip. However, a handful of others also have Las Vegas Formula 1 hotel and ticket packages.

Resorts World Las Vegas

Resorts World, a race sponsor, has a variety of hotel and race packages starting at $35,000.

The Legacy Zouk package costs $200,000 for a hotel suite, two weekend passes in the Las Vegas Grand Prix Paddock Club and bottle service. This deal includes a special presentation of the Tiesto performance at Zouk nightclub, and the buyer’s photo will appear on the screen of the hotel tower.

The Venetian

The Venetian is also a sponsor of the race. The property has a limited number of Las Vegas Formula 1 suites and ticket packages for The Venetian and The Palazzo. These packages are only available with grandstand tickets. Prices at The Venetian start with a basic king suite and passes for the weekend for $2,952.33 per night.

The Palazzo

Suites at The Palazzo start at 3,252.33 per night. Guests must stay three nights, and prices rise as the suites are larger.

Wynn

Wynn Las Vegas, also a sponsor has numerous LVGP packages. Its most expensive F1 package is $1 million!

Budget-friendly F1 Las Vegas options

Cosmopolitan and Wynn have not released their hotel and ticket packages at the time of this article. Bargain hunters might want to keep an eye on Best Western hotel rates. The small hotel above Casino Royale is sure to be less expensive than the casino resorts.
